1988 Bridgestone RB2

What frame material did they have? Saw one for $375? is that a good price? How does it compare to Centurion Iron Man Dave Scott Expert?

Thanks

Check out the '88 catalog on Sheldon Brown's website: https://sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/1988/index.htm

Looking at the components and weight I would not pay $375, probably not even if the bike was NOS... Bridgestones do have a cult following but I don't see the value there at 24.5lbs and Exage components.

I own an RB-1 that I paid just a little bit more than what they are asking for the RB-2. I think there is a big difference between the RB-1 and RB-2. I also own an IronMan Expert which I like a lot. Between the two I would pick the IronMan for sure. You should be able to pick up an IronMan for under $300. I paid significantly less than that for mine.
